The Me and Mine Family Portrait Project - November 2016 | When Meeting Santa Goes A Little Bit Wrong

This is probably not the photo I had envisioned for this month. I mean for one, what is going on with my crazy eyes? And also could my hair be any flatter if it even tried?! ;)

A trip to see Mr Claus himself was supposed to be a magical family moment, a moment to really kick off the festivities as we head in to December. But when you've got young children, moments don't aways, in fact they rarely, seem to go totally to plan. 

And the reason for my slightly dodgy face (and hair) can be found within the second picture below..

A Trip To Butlins, Bognor Regis | Just For Tots Break

Butlins bognor regis just for tots review, butlins, butlins bognor regis, just for tots, uk holiday for kids under 5,

Rather excitingly we were recently invited along to Butlins on behalf of Channel Mum to go and record and capture our time on their 4 day Just For Tots Break in Bognor Regis. Adam and I hadn't been to Butlins since we were young and never as parents ourselves, but after receiving a run down of all that Butlins have to offer in the way of activities and entertainment for children under five we were super excited to take our boys.

5 Things I Find Difficult As a Mum | Splitting Myself, Meal Times, Mum Guilt & More

Being a Mum is the best thing in the world isn't it? There's nothing quite like it and there's certainly nothing better in the entire world than getting to raise our own tiny people into their own big people. 

But, the journey of parenthood isn't always smooth. 

Some days it seems to all go to plan, the balance is right, everyone is eating their meals, you don't feel like you've had to split yourself into a million tiny pieces to please everyone, all the balls are successfully being juggled and the parent-guilt is a distant memory. 

But there are also days as a parent where it feels like there's just not enough of us to go around and no matter how hard we try, we could be standing on our head juggling balls (I'm not sure how that would work either) the day just doesn't quite go to plan. And no matter how much we know we've tried and done our best, the parent guilt still comes out in full force (mine usually see's me in tears whilst I'm picking up the food I've just cooked that's been thrown all over the floor). 

It's certainly a whirlwind of emotions being a parent. I always say that as easy as it is to love my boys, it's not always so easy to actually raise them. 

A Review of the Epson EcoTank ET-3600 3-in-1 inkjet Printer

I'd be lying if I said that there wasn't a part of me that dreaded this time of year. Well, not dreaded, that seems a bit harsh.. maybe just worried about it. 

It's our busiest time of the year work-wise and whilst it's great for business, it does mean very little down time and when we get to the end of a busy day of work and juggling looking after our two little boys during the day between us, the last thing we usually want to do is more work. Especially when the bed looks so warm and cosy! 

But it's all because my Husband sells something that that this time of year, is in high demand.... Lego! Year after year Lego tops the charts when it comes to top toys and my Husband, who's always been passionate himself, even as a little boy, about Lego, found his niche in selling adult Lego. You can check out his store here if you'd like to see what I mean. 

All year round he's busy selling his Lego custom lightsabers and his Lego custom Walking Dead figures as well as everything else and with me blogging and vlogging over on youTube, our home office is never not busy. So when Epson asked if we would like to review their EcoTank Et-3600 3-in-1 inkjet printer we  of course jumped at the chance.
